She Went As Quiet As the Dew


"She Went As Quiet As the Dew" is currently published in the Ernst Bacon collection simply titled Songs From Emily Dickinson for Medium/High Voice.

by Emily Dickinson

She went as quiet as the dew\t
From a familiar flower.\t
Not like the dew did she return\t
At the accustomed hour!\t

She dropt as softly as a star
From out my summer’s eve;\t
Less skillful than Leverrier\t
It’s sorer to believe!\t
